  • "What a lovely tranquil place to stay in - the cabin was so comfortable ."

    .. great beds and that sofa - so comfy! A great position elevated up in the hill overlooking the loch - a pleasure to wake up to every morning and see the sunrise whilst listening to the chorus of birds. Very covid safe and clean aswell - we would certainly recommend and can’t wait until we can come back again - thank you fir a lovely staycation

  • "Cottage was well fitted out, and well situated."

    Road up to cottage full of potholes and needs attention. Dishwasher was full of unwashed and unrinsed dishes don't understand how cleaner missed this if cottage was supposed to be thoroughly cleaned. Apart from this we enjoyed the weeks holiday it was a good break.

  • "Our holiday was amazing, property location and standards of cleanliness, the owners attentiveness were all outstanding."

    Our ability to contact You has been extremely difficult, Covid we understand has made changes necessary but to allow customers to wait on hold for almost 2 hours on more than 1 occasion with no other way of contact either email or messenger is not in the least bit acceptable. I'm a keyworker and have worked right through lockdown and beyond so I am keenly aware of the restrictions and difficulties faced, I do find your service on this occasion needs vast improvement.

  • "Great view from lodge but the road up to it needs repairing."

    Steep steps down from car to lodge so not for those who cannot manage that. We found the kitchen area tiny to prep anything. There was a horrible smell in the single bedroom, not sure what it was. The view was great with plenty of wildlife to watch. We had pine martens visit the patio every evening, which was amazing. A good base for walking and also visiting Mull, Oban, Glencoe, Fort William etc.

  • "Understandably covid has had an impact so communication regarding the booking was difficult."

    Also as some items had been removed it is hard to tell what it would have been like in normal times. I did bring more than I usually would, but probably a list of items to definitely bring would help. Otherwise the lodge was very nice and a fantastic location. Shame the garden was so small. Not great for a border collie

  • "Checked with owner only 4steps down failed to say and a steep hillside."

    Then an 18 inch climb onto the deck for the front door. Almost impossible to find staffa up a twisting drive but owner came down into village to collect us, he said the recent storms had blown signs down but the visitors book said otherwise. Saturday we managed to climb back up then I repacked .Sykes got me this wonderful apartment nevis at fort William and my holiday was saved

    Beautiful views out over the Loch that we never got bored of looking at. Cannot put into words how lovely the area is , around every corner is a different view. Seeing the Deers and Stags rolling in the mud will be something we will remember for a long time. Will return again soon .

  • "We specifically booked this cottage as an accessible cottage."

    Sykes Cottages are completely ignorant of what accessible means. I am in a wheelchair and so when we parked in the allocated car park space it was only then we realised there was no access for a wheelchair, 4 large steps down to the cottage from the car park and one large step to access the property. There were no ramps. So we were forced to swap with our friends who were booked into a local hotel and this we were unable to share the accommodation with our daughter.. To say we were furious is an understatement , having travelled 300 plus miles and so soon after major surgery to then find we couldn’t access the property was a complete nightmare. We won’t be using Sykes in the future. The owners obviously know the property isn’t accessible as my daughter told us there were comments in the visitors book to that effect. Rubbish service form a sub-standard company..

    Thank you for taking the time to complete our feedback form. It would have been advised to you that this property is not suitable for those with mobility issues, had you booked over the phone. As this is clearly displayed on our website and outlined in the property notes, we feel this property is adequately advertised and we make clear the fact that people such as yourself may have issues accessing the property. Please contact our customer relations department to discuss this further. Property Owner

  • "The location of Staffa is ideal for exploring Morvern, Ardnamurchan, Glencoe and Fort William."

    It is set in a very tranquil area and is unaffected by light pollution. Over the two weeks of our holiday we have sighted Pine Martins on the patio, numerous times, helped by the peanut butter sandwiches we left out! Out and about we saw Deer, snakes, Eagle, seals, heron and countless birds. We found the lodge well equipped, warm and very comfortable. The access road is a little rough and steep but didn’t affect our rating as it was worth the the odd bump to enjoy the views afforded by the accommodation. Overall fantastic place and would recommend highly.

  • "Strontian is an excellent base for exploring Ardnamurchan, Morven and Mull."

    The cabin is well appointed and comfortable with stunning views. The location is far enough away to ‘get away from it all’, but close enough to reach the town of Fort William within an hour (slightly over the hour if you avoid the ferry, and take the coast road). There are two local shops, a post office and a petrol station (the closest shop is actually all three) - and an excellent pub/hotel at the bottom of the hill. Kilcamb Lodge offers top end food if you want to push the boat out, and there is another hotel I mile out of the village of Strontian, with a small artist studio opposite - well worth a visit. The ferry to Mull at Lochaline is a pretty drive, and Tobermory is another place to visit (you can also get across at Kilchoan - on the road to Ardnamurchan point and Lighthouse). The new Distillery at Glenborrowdale/ Glenbeg is in a beautiful setting and the tour is given by people who are passionate about what they do. The RSPB reserve and shop/coffee house is also nearby. Glenfinnan is about an hour away (Harry Potter viaduct) - spoiler; no flying Ford Anglia’s. I go back further - when Bonnie Price Charlie was still the star. The real star though is the countryside, and the view from the cabin is one of the best in Scotland. Have fun, and don’t worry about the weather - it will change in 30 minutes!

    It is up a very steep hill and then down round a steep sharp bend. For some people this would be difficult, indeed one morning the hill was all ice and so it was difficult to get out. Apart from that it had everything we needed and was very clean, the views were beautiful.

    However, you have to stay in the bar, where they set up a couple of tables next to the restaurant. Food good, but the steak medium instead of well done. Lots to do, recommend Ferry , Skye from Mallaig, Mull from Kilchoan (Tobermory). Arisaig Kayak , £50 half day and very safe, shallow bay/islets. Glenfinnan viaduct and monument .Cambusdarach beach(a beauty). Ardtoe beach was also excellent. Glencoe , Macdonald monument , Kinlochleven, Ben Nevis and Fort William a must.

    Great view over the loch & across to the bens. Accommodation was excellent - comfy, clean & spacious. Had everything you needed, even down to a pint of milk in the fridge & a packet of shortbread ( nice touch ! ). If I was in the habit of revisiting an area I would definitely go back to Staffa again, but tend to try different places.
